    For those of you who rank top 5 on money keywords, how much do you see your rankings fluctuate? Do they move positions monthly or stay static for years?

    There is no fixed answer anymore.. depends on where searcher is, what device they are using previous browsing habits, . so many variables..

    As Frank said, huge amount of variables. However, once something "sticks" it tends to stay there for a good while in my experience. I'd consider "sticking" as being moved into a position and staying there +/- 1.5ish for a month or more.

    I would avoid massive changes on the sites.

    When it comes to ranking, I don't think that changing Google algorithms have such a big influence on top positions...

    How about the latest Google Update? Anyone has been hit?

    2 of my smaller casino websites have lost 50% of their traffic, plus one big website that has nothing to do with gambling went down from 2.3K daily to just 2-300.

    No major changes were made on these websites so I presume is the latest G update.

    There's something definitely going on with google's algo. One day my site has a decent number of pages indexed and is receiving OK trafffic, the next day the number of indexed pages significantly drop, and so does the google traffic.

    The equivalent of a tango dance. A few days up, a day down and then a few days up. It was a quality content update but in certain areas it went wrong

    I believe certain people reported similar things seen in our niches.My guess would be Google is trying to iron out the glitches.

    Overall I'm pleased as it has affected me positively.

    This is the reason i started this thread, now realizing Google made one of its ever largest algo updates ever which rolled out Aug 1. It has targeted Your Money or Your Life websites in particular. I've seen a significant drop in traffic. I now see crappy pages with thin content outrank better pages.
